A large sh^re of the Faticn's vec/e tables arc r^ra/in on Florida farms. Ficrida 
ranks second in the ITation in the production of vegctatlos for fresh market. The 
purpose of this publication is to assemble into one report the basic ve~etablo 
statistics and to make it available to Florida's vei^etable jro'^crs, shi-operSj asrri- 
cultural leaders J research v/orkers and others. 

This publication contains the official estiinatcs of acreage, yields, production, 
price s and -value for IS vegetable and m.elon crops. Estiraates are included for 
counties and areas as v.-ell as the State. The estimates are further broken dov/n into 
seasonal groups of fall, x.'inter. and spring. Also included in th.is publication arc 
rail and truck shipments by months. Production eaid marketing costs s.nd returns on 
selected vegetable crops are shovm. 

ACKFOvVLSD(MSFTS 

The cooperation of the vegetable grovrers, nackers. shippers , marketing organiza- 
tions, seedsraenj processors, railroad representatives and others , vmc contributed the 
basic information for this publication, is ap^^reciated . Only through the cooperation

SSASOrAL G.IOUPS - Ii" order to shov; supplies xor a shorter period of time than 
the entire rnr.rlcc tir..'- se-^scn, seasonal estimates arc made for raost vegetable crops. 
In Florida, the rriarlcotinr neacon is f;enerally broken into three rrovips, depending 
on the ti:'ac c? hardest. 

FALL " October, lIoTcmberj December 
•VIFISH - January, February, ?,!arch 
3PHI?:G - April, "May, June 

This arranf-:e-ncnt ic- not as precise as indicated as there is considerable over- 
la-oping in the marketing seasons for individual crops. Also it has been considered 
TDractioal to carry cabba.r:e, cauliflo'./er, escarole, lettuce one! s trav'.'berries as winter 
crops since the heaviest volume is :;encrally harvested durinp- this period. 

PLATTED ACR'iAG-E is the total acreage v/hich has been pleaited for harvest during 
one designated season. To avoid duplication, acreage lost c-xid. replanted to the sarae 
crop in tim.e for harvest in the same season is counted only once, 

ACPlES for I-LA. RYEST is the acreage harvested or partially/ harvested dIus any 
additional acreage v/hich reached maturity, but v/as not harvested due to lov: prices 
or ether econom.io conditions. Acreage lost before or at maturi-i^;,^ through na-tural 
causes is not included in the acres.ge for harvest. ~ 

YIELD is the total production of merch8n.table quality produced on an acre basis 
and includes any miharvested production left in fields for economic reasons. 

PRCDUCTIO-^ includes the quantity actually harvested plus ejij quantity thiat was 
loft duo to economic abandonmicnt "vhere losses of this tippc occur. 

EGOI^anc ABAjgDOMENT is that portion of the crop that reaches maturity and is 
of merchantable quality but is not harvested because of lov; prices or other economic 
factors . 

PxRODuCTIO-M OF VALUE is the total production less the quantity abaaidoned due to 
e c on omi c re a 3 on s . 

AVEPAQE PR ICES represent the F.O.H. price received or its equivalent for all 
grades and qu.alitj'" of the comni.odity less selling charges and are on a hundredv; eight 
bas is c 

TOT/lL Vi\L'JS is the average price received times the production of value. 

PROCESSED \^GETAELE3 is the acreage of vegetables in Florida pl^?nted solely for 
canning and other processing purposes durinc the period covered hy this publication 
and has been confined principall}/ to cucumbers for pickles, spinach, ojid a relative- 
ly small percent of the bean crop. Tne greater part of the bean acreage and all the 
tomato acrea^'e is planted prim.arily for fresh market, but each year, substantial 
quantities of each comm.odity are caimed or frozen. 

In order to shov; the utilization of the production from the acreage of beans 
and tom.atoes brou-:^ht to harvest, three columiis on production are used in the State 
Summaries. The first shov/s the total production, the second shovrs the production 
sold for fresh market consujnption, and the third shov/s the production sold for 
processing (either canned or frozen). 

MIXED RA-IL GARS - Mixed rail car v/ai^bills are tabulated for the contents in each 
m.ixed car of vegetables shipTied. The total quaiitity of each com;riodity is then con- 
verted into the equix'alent of a straight ra.il car. 



VEGETABLES 
Ml^IUAL SmARY 
1960- 61 



Florida vcgotablo production during the 1960-61 season was 11 percent more than 
the 1959-60 season and 13 percent above the 10-ycar average. The 1960-61 production 
of 38j,903j000 hundredweight compares with 34,936,000 hundredweight the previous year 
and the average production of 34,316,000 hundredweight « The increased production v/as 
the result of unusually good yields on practically all vegetable crops. Harvested 
acreage of the 18 vegetable and melon crops on v/hich estimates are made, totaled 
316,400 acres y 6 percent less than 1959-60 and 13 percent below average. 

Taluo of production during 19 60-61 season v;as ^^1 59, 598 ,000, up slightly from the 
preceding season and 7 percent above average. Eased on value of production, the five 
leading vegetable crops in Florida during 1960-61 season were; (l) tomatoes; (2) snap 
beans I (3) sweet corni (4) potatoes j and (5) green peppers. 

Growing conditions during the year varied from poor to excellent, depending on 
the area and the season of the year^ Plantings of vegetable crops for fall produc- 
tion were delayed by excessively heavy rains and wet soil. Winds and rains from 
Hurricane Donna caused some temporary delays and loss of acreage o Again in the lat- 
ter part of October and Kovemberp rains delayed plantings in Dade County and the Fort 
Myers -Immokalee areas. December weather v/as mostly favorable for vegetable produc- 
tioHo During January, several cold air masses covered the State, Frost and freeze 
damage to vegetables was light, mostly retarding growth, v/ith some leaf burn on tender 
cropse Heavy rains in mid-January in Dade County sharply reduced winter potato pro- 
ductiono Favorable conditions during February v/ero follov/ed by severe frost and 
freeze damage on March 10-11 o The Everglades area suffered a heavy loss of sweet com 
and snap bean acreage. April and May conditions tended to promote good growth for 
most vegetable crops ' although many areas v/ero becoming dryc. Yields wore excellent on 
several spring crops, especially potatoes in the Hastings area and sweet corn at 
Zellwoodo 

The five leading- vegetable counties, based on harvested acreage, accoimted for 
68 percent of the total vegetable acreage harvested last year. The five leading 
melon counties , based on harvested acreage, accounted for only 42 percent of the 
melon acreage harvested last yearo

LIMA BEANS 



1960-61 

Florida lima bearx production during the 1960-61 crop year v/as 178,000 bushels, 
19 percent more than the 150^000 bushels produced in 1959-60 but 19 percent belov; 
average. Value of production in 1960-61 at ISeEjOOO was 12 percent more than the 
previous year but 19 percent less than average. The acreage harvested in 19 60-61 
was estimated at 1^650 acres, the seme as the previous year, but 39 percent below 
the 10-year average ■> The average yield for the entire crop year was 108 bushels 
per acroo 

Early fall harvest began in North Florida counties in October followed by a 
continued^ but light supply from the Plant City area. Most winter and early 
spring lima boan shipments originated in the Pompano area and moved heavily to 
intrastate points. Spring crop supplies were again available in an increased 
amount from Plant City and later from North Florida. Warm February weather hasten- 
ed maturity of late winter and early spring limas in the Pompano area. Leaf miners 
were a problem in most fields. Cool nights atid cold winds the first three weeks of 
April retarded the growth of North Florida plantings. Generally favorable weather 
for growing and harvesting prevailed during the remainder of the season with a good 
spring yield being obtained.

SNAP BEANS 

I96C-6I 



Florida snap bean production during the 19S0-61 crop year v/as 6,977,000 
bushels, 18 percent more than the 5,903,000 bushels produced during 1959-60, and 
slightly above average. The -value of production was estimated at $17,482,000, 5 
percent more than the previous year but 1 percent below the 10-year average. The 
acreage harvested in 1960-61 was estimated at 56,100 acres, slightly more than 
the 55,800 acres harvested in 1959-60 but 11 percent belov/ average. The average 
yield for the entire crop year v/as 124 bushels per acre. 

The fall 1960 growing season v^ras dominated by excessive rainfall. Hurricane 
Donna added appreciably to this excess, causing delays in planting and resulting 
in some loss of acreage in south Dade County. The Everglades and Pcmpano sections 
were not appreciably hurt, but did receive too much rainfall during the period for 
best production results. The winter growing season was marked by excessive rain 
on January 12-13, particularly in Dade County. Growth in the Everglades v/as slow- 
ed by cold on January 21. Spring plantings were subjected to a cold air mass on 
March 10 and 11. Very little loss of acreage occurred in North Florida as early 
plantinp:s v/ere just coming up, but Everglades bean growers suffered heavy loss of 
acreage. Replanting was heavy but not complete as" 2,000 acres v/ere estimated to 
have been planted and not brought to harvest. Both spring and fall production 
from Zellv/ood and the Everglades areas Virere heavily utilized by processors.

CABBAGE 

1960-61 

Florida cabbage production during the 13 SO- 81 crop year was 6,120,000 crates, 
2 percent less than the 6,262,000 crates produced in 1959-60 and 1 percent less 
than average. Value of production in 1960-61 at ^5,130,000 was 24 percent less 
than last year and 21 percent below average. Acreage harvested in 1960-61 at 
18,000 acres v;as less than 1 percent above last year and 8 percent more than aver- 
age. Yield averaged 340 crates per acre for the entire crop year. 

The favorable grov/ing weather of October and Koveinber gave v/ay to less favor- 
able conditions in December. Several extensive masses of cold air moved across 
the State during the month. The main effect to the cabbage crop v/as light frost 
damage i_n the Hastings and Central Florida areas. The very cold temperatu.rGs of 
January 21-23 brought only relatively light damage again in the Hastinc-s and 
Central Florida areas. ° 



Ls in 



Weather in February v/as generally favorable for good growth as it v/at 
March and April. Economic abandorjnent occurred throughout the crop year, prin 
cipally due to the low market. Much of the cabbage abandoned v/as good quality. 
Palm Beach Coiinty harvested the largest acreage during the season followed by 
St. Johns, Putnam, and Flagler Coxinties in that order.

CANTALOUP 

1960-61 



I 



Florida cantaloup production during the 1961 crop year was 75,000 hundred- 
weight, 4 percent more than the 72,000 hundredv/eight produced in 1960 but 7 per- 
cent below average. Value of production in 1961 at $450,000 was 1 percent more 
th'in laj-t year Pud 11 percent above average , Acreage harvested in 1961 at 
l,o00 ac.v-es v/as 17 percent less than last year and 16 percent beloxv average. 
Yield r.veraged 50 hundredv/oight per acre. y 

Tcather conditions were generally verj- favorable to good vine growth 
throughout the State. Florida experienced a waring dry spring that v;as instru- 
mental in producing good to excellent quality/ lopes. Sizes were not large, 
however, Approxirnately 70 percent of the total production came from Alachua, 
Dade, and Marion Counties. The small acreage loss was principally due to 
extreme dryness in some localities where there vms no irrigation.

CAULIFLOWER 

1960-61 



Florida cauliflov/er production during the 1960-61 crop year v/as 20,000 himdred- 
wcight, 13 pcrcont less than the 23,000 hundredweight produced in 1959-60 and 58 
percent beloiv average. Yalue of production in 1960-61 at $176,000 vms 19 percent 
less than last year and 53 percent belov/ average. Acreage harvested in 1960-61 at 
250 acres was 17 percent less than last year and 68 percent belov/ average. Yield 
averaged 80 hundredweight per acre for the entire crop year. All the above cauli- 
flov/er yield, production and value figures are on a close-trim (pre-packaging) 
basis to conform to the National trend. 

Weather conditions during the 19 60-61 grov/ing season were quite variable, 
November, December, and most of January sav/ generally good grov/ing conditions. 
However, the February and March temperatures for the most part v;ere too high for 
good curd development. Therefore, much acreage was left unharvested duo to lack 
of quality. Very light harvest activity continued into April and May.

SWEET CORN 

1960-61 

Florida svreot corn production during the- 1960-61 crop year was e^OSS^OOO 
sratos, 17 percent less than the 7,326,000 crates produced in 1959-60 and 5 por- 
;ont b;lo.v a^-erage , Value of production in 19 60-61 at $14,464,000 was 7 percent 
more then last year and 25 percent above average . Acreage harvested in 19 60-61 at 
35,900 acres v/as 19 percent less than the 41,900 acres harvested in 1959-60 and 8 
porcent below average. Yield averaged 180 crates per acre for the entire crop 
yearo Palm Beach County continued as the loading sweet com producing coujitj^ in 
19 60-61 s producing 65 percent of the State's sv^eet corn production. 

yfeather conditions during the 19 SO- 31 growing season were quite variable c 
Kains in September 19 60 following the passing of Hurricane Donna caused some loss 
of acreage and delayed planting operations in the Everglades c Winds during Decem- 
ber caused some windburn although not to a degree that v/ould affect growths On 
January 21-23, the mass of cold air that covered the State brought the first occur- 
rence of general freezing and frost in the southern interior areas of the State. 
Damage to the winter com acreage was very light. During February, growing condi- 
tions wore generally favorable. March 10-11, frosts and'^f reezing temperatures ex- 
tended into practically all production areas v/.ith the heaviest loss occurring- in 
the Everglades. Over 10,000 acres of sweet com were lost completelyo Replanting 
began immediately with over 6,000 acres being replanted. In the Zellwood area, 
acreage lost to the cold was very light, Tac favorable growing conditions that 
profiled during April, May, and June v/ere reflected in the record yields obtained.

CUCUMBERS 

1960-61 



Florida cucumber production for both frosh market and processing during the 
1960-61 crop year luas SjSSSoOOO bushels^ 28 percent more than the 2,613,000 bushels 
produced in 1959-60 and 8 percent above the 10-year average . "Value of production 
in 1960-61 at $9 3239»000 was 2 percent less than last year but less than 1 percent 
above avoragD. Acreage harvested in 1960-61 at 16,100 acres v;as 3 percent less 
than the 16^600 acres harvested in 1959-60 and 4 percent less than average. Yield 
averaged 208 bushels per acre for the entire crop year. 

i/Teather conditions during the 1960-61 growing season v/ere variable. Hurricane 
Donna was responsible for a delay in fall planting in south Florida and consider- 
able acreage loss in the Wauchula area where replanting v;as necessary. Favorable 
v/eather followed until the fall crop had been harvested. Acreage for v/inter har- 
vest is normally in tvao definite periods--oarly and late,. Cold v/inds of January 
21-23 virtually ended production from the oldest group and severely damaged the 
younger crope Planting for spring harvest xvas nearly complete by early March. Feb- 
ruary growing conditions were for the most part favorable. Frosts and freezing 
temperatures of March 10-11 which invaded practically every production area brought 
varj/'ing degrees of damage ^ For the most part, harvesting continued, but at reduced 
yields c Favorable temperatures continued through. April and May. Irrigation was 
necessary in all areas »

EGGPLANT 

1960-61 



Florida eggplant production during the 1960-61 crop year v/as 1,000,000 bushels, 
14 percent more than the 874,000 bushels produced in 1959-60 and 10 percent above 
the 10-year average. Value of production in 19 60-61 at ^2,105,000 v/as 8 percent 
more than last year and 27 percent above average. Acreage harvested in 1960-61 at 
2,700 was 16 percent less than last year and less than 1 percent belov/ average. 
Yield averaged 370 bushels per acre for entire year. Palm Beach County continued 
as the principal eggplant producing county in 19 60-61, producing 68 percent of the 
State's eggplant production. 

Weather conditions during the 1960-61 season were varied but were generally 
favorable. The effects of Hurricane Donna v/ere minimal since most of the eggplant 
acreage was located in the Palm Beach-Broward County area. Cold weather and v^inds 
during January and early February retarded groxvth and reduced production in some 
fields. Good grovfing weather during February and early March was halted temporar- 
ily by near freezing temperatures on March 10-11, There was some light loss of 
acreage at this time. The remainder of the season was generally favorable for 
good grov/th. Production from South Florida fields v>ras virtually complete by June 1. 
Irrigation was very active where available throughout the spring months. The Plant 
City and North Florida areas were at peak production early in June, and excellent 
yields were obtained.

ESCAROLE 

1960-61 



Florida escarolc product,! on during the 19 60-61 crop year v/as 2,880,000 crates, 
3 percent loss than the 2,97 65000 crates produced in 1959-60 but 15 percent above 
average. Value of production in 1960-61 at |2, 673, 000 was 16 percent less than 
last year and 2 percent belov>r average. Acreage harvested in 19 60-61 at 6,000 acres 
was 3 percent less than the 6,200 acres harvested in 1959-60 bu 17 percent above 
average. Yield averaged 4-80 crates per acre for the entire crop year. 

Weather conditions in the escarole producing areas of the State were varied 
during the crop year. Hurricane Donna caused some temporary setback in groiving 
conditions, but this was followed by excellent wjeather through November. December 
saw several cold snaps move into the State. The accompanying frosts and winds 
damaged the crop in Central Florida. In January, another cold air mass moved into 
the St-ate. Light frostburn and cold damage occurred in the Sarasota and Central 
Florida areas. Only spotted damage in colder field locations occurred in the 
Everglades areao Vfoathor conditions were good until March 10-11 when freezing 
temperatures again moved into the important Everglades area inflicting some damage. 
Conditions were excellent the remainder of the season. Palm Beach Coimty harvested 
4,400 of the 6,000 acres harvested in the State

LETTUCE 

1960-61 



Florida lettuce production during the 1960-61 crop year v>fas 276,000 hundred- 
weight, 18 percent more than the 248,000 hundredv;oi,'?;ht produced in 1959-60 but 22 
percent bolov/ average. Value of production in 1960-61 at $1,325,000 was 16 per- 
cent loss than last year and 13 percent bolov/ the 10- year average. Acreage har- 
vested in 1960-61 at 2,900 acres v/as 12 percent less than 1959-60 and 17 percent 
below average. Yield averaged 95 hundredv^eight per acre for the entire crop year. 

Weather conditions varied during the grov/in^ seas on, but were for the most 
part beneficial to lettuce production^ Excellent conditions existed until Decem- 
ber wh.en some frost and wind damage occurred in Central Florida. In January, cold 
winds and frost again invaded the State, causing some damage to the crop in 
Central Florida, but only light damage in the Everglades area. Good weather then 
prevailed until March 10-11 when frost and cold winds once more brought damage to 
croDG in all areas. Weather for the remainder of the season was generally good 
for growth and production. Counties leading in harvested acreage were: Palm 
Beach, Orange, Seminole,, Highlands, and Hillsborough,

GREEN PEPPER 



I 960-61 

Florida pepper production during the 19 60-61 crop year viras 4,943,000 bushels, 
13 percent more than the 4,379,000 bushels produced in 1959-60 and 28 percent above 
average. Value of production in 1960-61 at |12,628,000 v/as 2 percent less than the 
previous year but 15 percent above the 10-year average. Acreage harvested in 
1960-61 at 13,200 acres was 2 percent less than the 13,400 acres harvested in 
1959-60 but 3 percent more than average. The average yield for the crop year v/as 
374 bushels per acre. 



Plantings for early fall harvest v/ere seeded to the field in August 19 60 with 
some fall production coming from later plantings v/hich extended through November. 
Early plantings in the Fort Myers-Immokalee area sustained a rather severe loss as 
a result of the wind and rains of Hurricane Donna. Eeavy replanting was necessary. 
The entire producing area v/as affected by excessive fall rains. Some damage occur- 
red in fields on the lower East Coast. Excessive leaching of fertilizer and wash- 
ing of beds caused some replanting. Grov/th of the y/inter acreage was retarded by 
cold during January and again in early March. Hov/ever, good production was obtain- 
ed in most winter production areas. Spring plantings were belov/ normal, but har- 
vested yields were quite satisfactory. Mosaic infestations in spring plantings in 
the important Pompano area has caused an appreciable shift to earlier production. 
Uo serious cold or flooding rains came to affect this spring crop.

POTATOES 

1960-61 



Florida Irish potato production during the 1960-31 crop year v/as 5,810,000 
hundredweight, 28 percent more than the 4,535,000 hundredv/eight produced in 1959-60 
ajid 3 percent ahove average. Value of production in 1960-61 at $13,286,000 was 25 
percent less than last year and 22 percent belov/ the 10-year airerage. Acreage har- 
vested in 1960-61 at 34,100 acres v/as 9 percent less than the 37,300 acres harvest- 
ed in 1959-60 and 11 percent below average. The yield for the entire season aver- 
aged 170 hundredv/eight per acre for all areas of the State. A record yield of 190 
hundredweight per acre was obtained in the important Hastings area. 

Planting of the winter potato crop v;as delayed by wet soils. In the Everglades 
rains preceding Hurricane Donna caused a slow dov;n in planting operations. In Dade 
County and the Fort Myers -Immokaleo area, hoav^^- rains in late October and early Nov- 
ember restricted plantings temporarilyo Grov/ing conditions during December were gen 
orally favorable. On January 12 and extending into the 13th, \musually heavy rains 
in Dade County caused a sharp reduction in production. Yields in other winter pro- 
ducing areas v/ore near average. Planting of the spring potato crop in the Hastings 
area was under generally favorable conditions. Stands obtained in most fields were 
good to excellent. The crop grow off v/ith little or no adverse weather affecting 
the plants, which accoiints for the record yield that v;as obtained in the Hastings 
area .

Weather conditions were varied throughout the State during the growing season. 
Hurricane Domia caused some acreage loss and- delayed fall planting somewhat in 
South Florida. Temperatures and rainfall during November and December v/ere favor- 
able for growing and harvesting. The winter producing areas also received fairly 
good groviTing weather as the yield was excellent. March, April, and May woather ¥/as 
generally warm ajid dry with the exception of cold on March 10-11 which extended 
into practically all areas. Irrigation was used whpre it was available o Quality

STRAWBERRIES 

1960-61 



Florida strawberry production during the 19S0-61 crop year vms 8,640,000 
pounds., 21 percent more than the 7,140,000 pounds produced in 1959-60 and 13 per- 
cent above average. Value of production in 1960-61 at $2,812,000 was 3 percent 
more than last year and 24 percent above average. Acreage harvested in 19 60-61 
at 1,800 acres was 29 percent more than last year but 43 percent below average. 
Yield averaged 4,800 pounds per acre for the entire crop year. 

Weather conditions during the crop year were-^ varied and at times very adverse 
for best growth» Cold winds and freezing temperatures were responsible for the 
loss of many blooms and some fruit, especially in the Plant City area. Growers in 
the lov/er East Coast area, xvhich is the area of greatest production, experienced 
some trouble in getting plants to live after setting them out. Shipments during 
the season reached their peak in March „ It is interesting to note that the usage 
of plastic to cover plant bods became general throughout the State this year.

TOMATOES 

1960-61 



Florida tomato production during the 19 60-61 crop year was 12,532,000 crates, 
4-8 percent more than the 8,454,000 crates produced in 1959-60 and 33 percent above 
average. Value of production in 19 60-61 at $49,015,000 was 10 percent more than 
last year and 12 percent ahove the 10-year average. Acreage harvested in 1960-61 
at 41,300 acres vras 8 percent more than the 38,300 acres harvested in 1959-60 but 
23 percent less than average. Yield averaged 253 crates per acre for the entire 
crop year. 

'.Teather conditions varied considerably during the growing season. Hurricane 
Donna, September 8-10, caused heavy acreage loss making much replanting necessary. 
Further reductions in fall acreage occurred from locally hoR-vy rains in early Octo- 
ber, hov;ever, growing and harvesting conditions were excellent from mid-October 
into December. Several cold air masses invaded the State in late December, retard- 
ing the growth of young vine-ripe and spring plantings. Cool nights in January 
along T/ith the freezing temperatures of January 21-23 kept growth rates lev;. Heav^^ 
rains in Dade County accounted for some loss of acreage in mid-January. Conditions 
vrere generally good during February and earl3/ March. March 10-11 again saw cold 
winds and freezing temperatures invade the State v/ith accompanying light damage to 
the tomato crop. YiTeather then improved and remained good for the rest of the grow- 
ing season although dryness became a problem. The main tomato producing counties 
^vere Dade, Hendry, Palm. Beach, and Manatee.

WATERMELONS 

1960-61 

Florida v/atermelon production during the 19 31 season v/as 8,125,000 hundred- 
v/oight (36,111,000 melons), 3 percent less than the 8,395,000 hundredweight produced 
in 1960 but 13 percent above average. Value of production 1961 at 112,188,000 v/as 2 
percent more than last year and 7 percent above average. Acreage harvested in 19 SI 
at 65,000 acres was 11 percent less than the 73,000 acres harvested in 1960 and 22 
percent below average. Yield per acre averaged 125 hundredweight (555 melons). 
Based on production, Collier County was the leading vrntermolon producing county in 
1961, follov/ed by Hendry, second, an.d Sumter County, third in production. 

South Florida counties began planting during November v/ith first harvest coming 
during March with a light volume of shipments. Volime of harvest continued to in- 
crease as other areas of production began shipments. Peak shipments were reached 
during the -v/cek ending June 10 when over 3,800 carlot equivalents of watermelons 
were shipped cut of the State. The cold v/ave that extended into all producing areas 
on ?.larch 10-11 damaged the crop in some areas, hov/evor, damaged crops recovered 
rapidly. High v/inds and rains March 31 caused some damage in the Fort Myers-Immok- 
alee area. During April, lack of rainfall tended to retard grov/th in the central 
area ;vhile v.-ot soils in west Florida hampered cultivation. Growing conditions dur- 
ing May and J\mc were generally favorable for good yields of good quality melons.
